*** 3.5 STARS ***

I have to say, I wasn't the biggest fan of Julian in Stealing Her and thus I was a bit reluctant to start this book even though I wanted to find out who he really is / how the accident changed him.

It took me a while to get into Finding Him but I ultimately really enjoyed it and read the final 60% of it in a single sitting. I really loved the female main character Keaton and I also liked Julian a lot

I hadn’t read a Rachel Van Dyken book in awhile prior to Finding Him. Although I haven’t read the first book in the Covet series, I enjoyed this one enough that I would go back and read the first book. Keaton and Julian were both really likable characters. I especially liked Julian and was rooting for him as a reformed playboy/jerk. Finding Him is about two people grieving the loss of loved ones who find themselves snowed in in a remote cabin together. An unlikely bond forms while they are stuck ...more

Thank you to Netgalley and Skyscape for a copy of this Arc for an honest review!

WOW!!! This book deals with personal lost between 2 characters and 2 different circumstances. This deals with trying to move on and getting on with life. Keaton Westbrook is a social media superstar who gets stranded with a billionaire in a wintery day in a cabin. The last thing these two wanted to do was have to be stranded together complete strangers.

I loved this book. A guilty pleasure that I can pick up and read

OH BOY!! I need a tissue, or two, oh fine! Give me the whole box.
At the beginning it was simply about two people overwhelmed with grief mixed with a witty and funny banter. It was funny, okay?
Then from nowhere at all, I started sobbing like a like a baby, never thought I’d be this big of a mess.
I loved Julian and Keaton so much. It didn't have much conflict, so if you don't enjoy them in a book this is safe for that.

This book was everything! Their love was everything! I devoured every second of the story. In all honesty I was very emotional, I've been sad, I have cried, I have laughed and I cheered for them. It was the perfect story for Julian and Keaton, the ending they deserved. I couldn't wish better outcome for them.

They met,although somewhat inconveniently, each grievingtheir personal loss. What they haven't expected was to find themselves snowed in and feel attracted to one another.

A snowed-in, one-night stand romance!

If you've read Stealing Her, then you know that Julian has woken up from a coma to find that his twin brother was blackmailed into impersonating him (by his crazy dad) and fell in love with Julian's fiancé! Julian is understandably angry and feeling lost after accomplishing his goal of removing his father from power. On top of that, he's reeling from the loss of his mother. A trip to their family cabin is in order. But there's one problem - the cabin has

Thank you so much to the publisher and to NetGalley for providing me an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was such a good book. The only reason that I did not rate this book 5 stars was because the first half of the book did not completely click with me. I had trouble focusing on the characters and their story. However, when I read the second half, a major switch happened for me in terms of my attitude towards this book. There were so many amazing parts that made me swoon,

Forever Love The Second Time Around

Heart-wrenchingly beautiful! I wanted Julian’s story and the author blew me away with this emotional love story. Two broken hearts that were drawn to one another and healed by acceptance and unconditional love.

Keaton has survived a terrible loss. She’s just trying to move forward. She’s been asked to write her story about how she fell in love and lost that love tragically to cancer. She’s a social media princess and the world wants to read her romance first

Very emotional story between Keaton and Julian. Keaton's recent past was so heartbreaking and I loved how Julian helped her through it all. In helping Keaton, Julian had to be vulnerable and open his heart.. He was able to forgive his brother and absolutely redeem himself.

I was really looking forward to Julian's story, cause I just love an anti-hero who redeems himself throughout his book.

While I really liked both the main characters, this book has two of my least favorite tropes in it.
Just give me Julian's book already!!! Why do I always root for the underdog...
Amazing. Simply amazing and it should come as no surprise that Rachel Van Dyken has produced another satisfying book full of emotion.

Julian Tennyson has had a rude awakening. After being in a coma, he woke up to find out that his twin brother not only took over his company but also stole his fiancé. Knowing himself and acknowledging that he’s spent a lifetime trying to please his heartless father, can he blame them? But facing tragedy and death has made him change his outlook in life.

Finding Him continues where Stealing Her ended but this is Julian’s Story this time, as opposed to Bridge’s, his twin brother. I do believe you would have a greater understanding of what these men have been through if you have read the first book in the series, but the author does mention the history between them if you have yet to do so. I however, have really enjoyed reading both books and would urge you to do the same.

What I loved about this book is the change we see in Julian. What he has

I really enjoyed reading about Julian. This is the follow up to Stealing Her and to really appreciate this one, you do need to read the first book. In the first book we get a little about Julian and let’s face it, most of it was bad! This book we get to know him and realise what a good man he is post the coma and maybe not so bad before. Keaton is going through grief and her previous love story had been lived in public. She is America’s sweetheart, Julian is definitely not! They are well suited ...more

This story is one of my favorites of 2020. Probably my favorite RVD book EVER!

Julian Tennyson is EVERYTHING AND MORE!

After reading Stealing Her, I couldn’t wait to read this story because I knew that we were all going to fall in love with Julian. I knew that he was going to redeem his broody self and boy did he ever! I knew deep down there was a heart of gold but we get to see something even more. We get to watch as these two write their story while saying goodbye to the past.

I was lucky enough to have been given a chance to read this book early, and I loved it. Julian wakes up from a coma to discover that his brother is now married to his fiance, and if that isn't enough he is being forced to take a vacation from his own company. Julian heads out to the one place that he has happy memories and finds he is not alone. Keaton has rented the cabin for a month to work on her memoirs alone she thinks and then in walks Julian. From his entrance until the end of the story ...more

Bring the tissues! I was so ready to hate Julian since he was such an ass when we met him in the first book. I know he had good reason to be grumpy, but I couldn't feel sorry for him. Welp, he totally stole my heart!! The story here is beautiful, the way Julian and Keaton fall in love is perfect. Even though parts of the story are absolutely heart-breaking, I loved every word of it. Rachel Van Dyken does an amazing job of weaving the sad, funny and sexy to give us an epic love story.

I have literally been blown away! I have to say this this book grabbed me and is still holding on. What a gripping story of losing your first love to a battle that you cannot win, only to fall for the one person that you never dreamed of. When two lost abd broken souls are thrown together by circumstances out of their control, the only ending has to be written. I absolutely loved every word of this book!

With my ruthless reputation, can I blame them for falling in love? I have to look long and hard at where I’ve been and where I’m headed. Alone time? The universe has other plans.

“Knowledge of pain is knowledge of life ... it’s like cutting off your blood circulation, suddenly you feel nothing, you just watch the blood—life itself—leave a part of your body. The pain you feel later, the tiny prick of needles attacking your skin, is the side effect of healing, it must happen for healing to take place. The pain gives life, and one day, the pain ... it will stop. Today ... isn’t that day, princess.”

"When someone dies we don’t lose that love, we just make room for more"

After reading Stealing Her I wasn't the biggest fan of Julian. I get that he was hurt after what happened with his twin and his fiancé but he came across as a bit of an arse. Oh how my opinion has changed. Julian and Keaton are both running from hurt looking for a place of solitude to process their separate issues. Julian is dealing with losing his mum and the betrayal of his twin. Keaton is suffering from a broken heart

By 20% in, I was already in the “feels” of this story. My heart was hammering and I knew I’d be crying by the end. How true was that feeling. So many times the words started to blur as tears formed. The emotional levels for both Julian and Keaton was high at all times. Boy, was this a doozy of a beautiful and emotion-filled love story. In my opinion, it’s one of Rachel Van Dyken’s BEST so far.

I was captivated with the Tennyson twins when I read Stealing Him. Though Julian

This book is filled with so much emotion, and not all of it stems from the relationship between the Heroine and Hero. There is actually two love stories within this one. While there are a few laughs throughout, this story isn't funny in the least. Lots of heartbreak. Quite the ugly cry read. (Consider yourself warned.) Even with all that emotion flowing, it's a beautiful story that is beautifully written. Both the h/H are well developed. Both are broken, having lost their greatest loves. They ...more

Title: Finding Him
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: Contemporary romance
My rating: 5 Stars

Wow! Well, that was an emotional well-written read. What a great surprise Julian and Keaton were!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Truthfully, I knew anything Rachel Van Dyken, was going to be a hit, and this was. This story is about loss, regret, pain…and how to move on from that. Julian and Keaton bare two different kinds of pain and learn to navigate solely; till they find each other. Can Keaton and Julian
I remember when I started the first book in this series the beginning had me so angsty I had to skip to the end (go check out my review) so when I got to this book I honestly didn't know what to expect. How was Rachel going to bring Julian to life. How were we going to love Julian when he didn't even love Julian himself.

Well let me tell you, I will admit, it takes a lot to make me emotional but there were a few times in this book where I had to put it down and take a deep

Julian and Keaton are not what I expected at all! Keaton, who is coming off of a tragic loss and Julian, who in his own right just suffered a devastating loss are both tempted by fate when a blizzard strands the two in a cabin. The two of them working through their grief is a beautiful thing when they do it together.

I really enjoyed the story, it just felt so intimate to me. The moments of grief, of love and the ones of closure, just brought Julian and Keaton so much closer together and I just

Julian had me intrigued in Stealing Her, because he was more than he first seemed. This books showed how absolutely wonderful he is, while still being a jerk when he’s protecting himself. Keaton had a lot to live up to, and it took its toll. Together, they were magical and special. I teared up a little at the end, but was smiling too! A stunningly heartbreaking and heart mending book!
